Katie May is an expat living in the Provence area of France.Home is shared with her dog and “three orphan kittens, which is two more than I need.But when she set up the site and invited people to register she was surprised to find that the idea appealed to people of all ages “I was surprised to discover that there is no predominant age group of English speaking people living in France”.
Sweet as they are, they cause furry havoc in my home and garden”.
Katie and her husband moved to Provence almost a decade ago and tells us “I love everything about Provence, it’s heaven and I’m so lucky to live here.
France has several good quality websites from which to choose.
As is the case with most countries, you will increase your chance of success if you live in a city with a large pool of potential partners.
Also the trials and tribulations in making the move to France, which was something else we all had in common.” Katie researched the issue and found that it was not unusual for expats to return to their home countries due to loneliness, because they felt that being single in France could mean remaining alone for a very long time.
Katie continued researching the problem and decided to set up an expat dating and friendship site in France and says she thought that it would appeal to those around her own age group of 50 and 60 year olds because there appeared to be so many retired people in France.
‘I joined a few French dating sites and met some very nice people.
But I would have liked the chance to meet other English speakers too and it just didn’t seem possible.
Especially as I wanted a ‘tailor made’ site, which had to be constructed from scratch and also have the inbuilt ability to grow and change.
And once the site is operational, it must be monitored and managed, so it’s now a full time job and there is a team of us involved to keep it all going.” The website is due to launch live toward the end of July – anyone signing up before it goes live will benefit from a FREE months full membership.
As a general rule of thumb, the more boring the profile, the more boring the person. Founded in 2001 and based in Boulogne-Billancourt, France, is the best online dating site in France.
